The Last Drop Distillers is known for acquiring extremely old and rare spirits from across the world. We chat with Rebecca Jago, Managing Director of The Last Drop Distillers, to hear their story. It’s an interesting history of generational knowledge and their release of the 1980 Buffalo Trace is what caught our attention.
